He's a great guy. IMO, he's the best on the radio.

I can't listen to 92.9, other than him, because they have become completely political.

He is a good guy. I've met him as well. His play by play is great. His extra stuff is blah. "Ring it up put 3 on the board" is lame. Pete Pranica had to stop saying "ring the bell" because of it

Not a fan of John Martin. Not hating...but I don't see how he even got here. Not an insider. Not a great writer. Not original. I just don't get it, but more power to him I guess.

Jason is fine. I can take him or leave him.


No one was replacing Verno.

Hell, I can barely listen to Hasseltine. I enjoy Jason and John's show.

Listened to Jeffrey cover for Hasseltine yesterday - so much more enjoyable IMO.

I liked John better paired with Geoff, they had an odd couple type thing going that could be entertaining at times. I don't like JM with JS as much and I don't like Geoff with the new guy on his show as much.

Is Rainey still on the air? He's horrible and cheats at golf. I played in his foursome once when I lived in Memphis. Called him out on a rule violation and he went berzerk. Left mid round without paying our bet. POS.

I miss the days of real sports journalism.

I wondered who the dude with the funny voice is.

Vernon sucked, but I can understand the appeal if you are of a certain age.

Thankful I haven't had to listen to "Hassletime" do a Griz game

I honestly don't understand what demographic Martin appeals to other than the drunk frat boy demo. He comes across as someone who thoroughly deserves to be punched in the face.

As for John Harden, I always picture Cartman behind the glass when I hear him.

I've had the misfortune of hearing him a couple of times. Does he host the show drunk? If he's recovering from a stroke or something then I apologize, but I just can't take his slurred, monotone delivery.

Is Verno going to do a live show again? I could of sworn that's what I remember him saying they were eventually going to do when he made the switch.

That guy is Rainman's vet. This is what John does. He goes to a business for a transaction - in this case animal services. Runs up a large bill and its time to pay up. Then he turns on the Rainman charm - you have a great business, do you do any advertising? No? Well I have been a successful radio talk show host for over 20 years blah blah blah. He then "trades" the vet bill for advertising time.

I wouldn't go that far. He's pretty good.....but it drives me crazy that he announce whether free throws go in, usually until both are shot (among other things) His voice is also a little high for my taste. I think he and Hank Elliot Perry are good together though. His radio show is terrible. But it is 2-4, so what do you expect ?

He's no Wolo.
